1 years ago, I had a very soft voice. People think that that it was a girl on the phone although I'm a boy. So, I tried to stress my voice by hardening it. Because of which, My voice is very harsh now. And I keep stuttering whenever I sing any Rap Song. Which was not a issue for me, Not at all. So, I would like to know, How can I improve my voice quality and Speak fluently and clearly like before.

Dear lybrate-user. Please don't worry about your voice now. You are just 14. When you attain the age of around 18, automatically your voice will change. If you worry too much, you may have anxiety disorder. Take care.

You should attend english speaking classes, elocution classes, and public speaking courses to improve your pronunciation. There is good video material in the british council that are useful too. This is not a big deal and you can do it in a short time.

lybrate-user there is no operation or medicine for Stammering. Unless it is diagnosed due to neurological cause. It is a habit associated with lack of self confidence and thus fear. So go to an experienced Speech Therapist.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, you should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

You may consult a speech pathologist too. He shall evaluate and find whether the stuttering need intervention or not. Sometimes speech can be emerging and appear non fluent (normal non fluency) in which no intervention is needed.

My voice is very low which is not heard from 2 or more Meyers so please suggest any medicine or any other suggestions.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

I am suffering from puberphonia from last 12 years. I can't control my voice for longer time. And I have to give lot of pressure while speaking. How can I cure it?

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
Puberphonia is a rare disorder in which adolescent males undergo voice changes to a much lower pitch due to a sudden increase in the length and thickness of the vocal folds. The muscles directly alongside the larynx become too tight, which causes the patient to constantly speak in high sound. Causes Emotional stress, Delayed development of secondary sexual characteristics Psychogenic etc. The treatment include voice therapy by speech language pathologist including :Cough, Speech range masking, Glottal attack before a vowel, Relaxation techniques to relax the laryngeal musculature, Lowering of larynx to appropriate position. Larynx manipulation: Surgery,Type III phonosurgery can be done, which includes surgical shortening and relaxation of the vocal cords. You can consult a ENT specialist for the same.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

There is a inferiority complex! That when I know that somebody has more knowledge than me or is much smarter than me so while talking to that person I stammer a lot. And people make fun of me. And 1 or 2 ppl with whom I am really close and open, then I don't stammer and speak properly. Please help.

Dear lybrate-user, I suppose your low confidence or inferiority complex due to your fear of not being able to make an impression by talking in a normal way. However, it may look reverse. You should know what was the oath for this development. If it was there since your childhood days it's mostly to do with your practice and other non progressive conditions. Stammering is very stressful and the only method to get it corrected is to practice strategies to speaking fluently. Your speech pathologist will be able to help you in this regard.

Hello! My cousin has been diagnosed with brain tumour which isn't malignant (age-15) He finished his radiation 3 months ago. Now he's facing problems like forgetting people and forgetting what he's doing and speaking unrelatedly. Here doctors say that that's because of edema and will subside within 3-4 months. Is there anything to worry?

At this point I would suggest that you just encourage him to do memory exercises. Do questions and answers. Play games like scrabble, word games. Singing and listen to music. Writing is also good exercise. Take medicines prescribed.
